There will be some spoilers, as I point out how stupid the story is.

This is so bad.

I've got a rule, which does backlash sometimes, that I do not criticise anything before seeing it to the end.

A complete waste of time. I watched it because the old one is on the top of my fav list. I've heard it's bad, but if it's simmilar to the old series, it should be at least decent, right? Right? Uh, no.

Let's start with storyline. So, apparently, Oboro gave birth to twins. Oboro, who was not pregnant at any time (pregnancy is only possible to hide if read more

Ever wanted an anime like Naruto except the Ninja world is ran by bunch of kids who are into incest? Well here is a little something for your specific taste.

Basilisk Ouka Whatever is a pretty fun anime when it comes to ninjutsu arts and samurai swordo fights. All sort of obscure weapons are wielded, blood splat, and body count is nothing but a number in this cold ninja world.

This raises the question: Why fight tho? This because the world consists of two different ninja clans and they don't like each others very much, so naturally they want to slap each others shit and kill everyone read more

This show is Star-Wars Prequel level bad. Just like those movies did, it is retroactively making me love the first series less. Skip it. Like for real, and I'm not talking about the 90s toy Skip-It. Don't watch this show.

I must preface that this review is heavily colored by my love of the original Basilisk anime, which in my not particularly humble opinion was a masterpiece. I cannot help but to compare them, but to be honest that is fine. Nobody who didn't watch Basilisk OG is going to sit through this travesty anyway. This will contain some very mild spoilers, but it doesn't read more

Well.. I'm hugely disappointed. I really enjoyed the first series. The story was excellent, animation style was on point, and it wasn't trying to be anyone else. But this... this is.. a bastardized Naruto+KissxSis+FMA+Ironman+Steampunk cluster f***. ALL IN JUST 1 EP! Like I said earlier, the first series knew what it was. It knew what it wanted, and how to get there. The main heroine this season is immediately identifiable as a dere archtype. Why any dere should be in Basilisk, YOU GOT ME!? By the ending credits on the first episode I had trouble picking my jaw up in amazement (not positive) of the read more
